English Muse: On this Tuesday in August...

On this Tuesday in August...

I just wanted to drop in to say hello
and show you this little collection of vintage images....

I came across several of them on istockphoto, a really good design resource. The rest were found on ffffound. As I was putting together the new template for the English Muse (what do you think of it?) I wanted to include a variety of vintage pictures. The photo of the mannequins is my favorite. I love the old dresses against the black-and-white striped background. And the little phone directory is very funny.

How is your summer going? After several very hard weeks, my father is finally doing better. I'm hoping that his illness is in a sort of remission. I want to thank all the wonderful guest bloggers who have helped keep the English Muse going these past few weeks. Their posts have cheered me up and dazzled me. I put together a little page for them, with their bios. (Please visit). I'm hoping that they'll stay on and continue to post.

Next week is the week we usually go to our little rented cabin in the High Sierras. I really want to make the trip this year. (I need to, actually.) I'm already scouting for wifi spots to blog. (Bringing the photo scanner along the fishing gear). Wish me luck!!

Miss you Tina! Hurry back soon, but take your time. Your blog-redo inspired me to redo An Open Letter.

I thought the phone directory was a little heart breaking, like something I'd see on Post Secret. I also love the new format!

I really like the sandy beach one. The angle on the umbrella just makes the photo. Or perhaps it's the color?

Great collection of vintage photos!

I send my thoughts and prayers to your dad. I hope he continues to do better.

Welcome back Tina! Your guest bloggers have done such an amazing job. I'm so glad to hear that your father is better. You DO need cabin time to relax and unwind. A walk in the woods is always therapeutic to me.

P.S. I think I posted this in a comment already, but the new blog format is beautiful!
